Bald Mountain is a gorgeous hike in Green Mountain National Forest.

With stunning views of the sounding lush green forests, hills, and lakes, Bald Mountain is a wonderful hike for anyone. The trail is open year round, but is best hiked from March through October. Dogs are allowed on this trail but must be kept on leash. 

At just under 8 miles round trip, this is also a great workout or training hike. If you don’t want to hike the entire trail, a good turn around point is the Bennington Overlook.
